As has become custom, comedy website Funny or Die is in high form this year with political satire just in time for the holidays. This time, it's the logical target: Newt Gingrich, who's name has all the letters for "Grinch" nearly in order.


In the animated short, comedian Paul F. Tompkins narrates a spin-off of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," featuring a green Gingrich whose head is far too large, as he schemes to take the presidency from Barack Obama.

The results are actually a bit more clever than you'd expect, even though this isn't the first Gingrich/Grinch video we've seen this year.
